CCN: More Secure, Cost-Effective Lighting Control Systems

14 March 2012

Up to 50 percent of total electricity consumption in office buildings is used for lighting. The worldwide drive to conserve energy and reduce CO2 emissions, as well as legislation to ban incandescent lights, is driving the adoption of low-energy lighting alternatives. As building lighting systems transition to more energy-efficient options, there is a growing opportunity to provide a secure, robust, and cost-effective way to install, operate, and manage these systems. This document presents a proposition for the design and prototyping of lighting control systems based on PARC’s Content-Centric Networking (CCN) technology. It includes an initial work proposition along with example use cases.

CCN: Intuitive Device Configuration and Home Media Sharing

14 March 2012

With the explosion in consumer electronics devices and growth in digital content generated and consumed at home, there is an increasing need for easy access to and sharing of digital media at home. Despite many efforts for industry standardization, device configurability and management remains a barrier to an intuitive user experience and seamless content sharing between devices. This document proposes a methodology for secure and intuitive device configuration and remote access service that enables sharing of media across mobile and home networking devices. The proposal outlines a phased methodology for easy and secure device configuration over Wi-Fi Direct, bootstrapping home network configuration, and enabling remote access and sharing of digital content. The document also highlights opportunities to drive growth for companies that operate in the consumer electronics devices or home media services sectors.

Methods for Ethnography: REACT

1 September 2011

Ethnographic insights have the power to fundamentally change perceptions, but it is often difficult to share observation-based insights out of context, and many clients don’t have the time to participate in workshops to absorb insights. PARC's Rapid Ethnographic Assessment and Communication Technique (REACT) compresses the ethnography process into a relatively short period of time and delivers findings that are essentially "self-presenting"…
